Long-championed by neo-Nashville insiders, Julie Miller's second album includes 11 originals plus the traditional "Two Soldiers", some of which she sings with her husband and producer Buddy Miller in harmony; on others she's joined by stellar guests. Patty Griffin sits in to help sing the beauteous ballad "I Still Cry"; Victoria Williams she and Miller have similar styles lends her voice to the folk dirge "Orphan Train"; and Steve Earle adds just the right twist to the cocaine blues "Strange Lover."

    Broken but healing

    Julie Miller touches you. Her lyrics and singing dig deep into your soul. These songs are not without hope, however, and that is what makes listening to this CD so rewarding. Highly recommended for those who enjoy the singer-songwriter genre.
